hi guysim new and feel a bit cheeky asking for help straight away, but im abit stuckim plagued by daily blue screens labelled memory management. usually when the central heatings on. i have a feeling its the ram stick, since memtest occasionally fails. but not allways. very intermittent. i enclose all the bits asked for in the 'how to post' guide.thankszak
hithanks used this program u suggested and saw the hal.dll file - not sure what this is really. i enabled "verifier" from cmd to force the BSOD's it kept crashing and creating dumps, so i disabled it again in safe mode and viewed the dumps in bluescreen view. came up with an offending driver: gdrv.sys (gigabytes mb software "dynamic energy saver" uninstalled that and see how i go?still dont know what that hal.dll thing isi tried sfc scan in administrator privilege but it wouldnt start the console?
hi, will do thanks. Overnight i ran memtest for a few hours and it found ALOT of errors. i tried each ramstick in turn (i have two x 2gb) and the errors repeated with each stick - in both slots. i enclose a pic. both ram sticks buggered?
It's not always bad ram. I get blue screens and fail memtest+ if my voltage Is a fraction out. I also get it using all four slots unless it's slightly underclocked.
If it's a new build check all the timing are correct (or looser)
check the voltage.
One run of memtest usually indicates stability.
Good luck took me a week to get this pc running stable.
Hi. System was built in 2009, and always had BSOD's. Albeit much less frequently on win 7- less than monthly perhaps? But always been regarding memory managent. Recently getting them daily since win 8!!
Iv not changed any of the voltage settings for ram/ nothing over locked. All running on defaults.
